everlasting movie
29 July 2012 | by See all my reviews

i cant actually explain in words what this movie means, but no matter how many times repeatedly i have watched this movie, i never get bored a bit. a beautiful love story and Mohanlal's performance was outstanding. i probably have seen this movie 1000 times already..... still fresh, each scene, dialog with a deep inner meaning. Padmarajan, Malayalam movies miss you... even though there is a touch of adult theme in the movie, we never get a vulgar feel. the whole movie revolve round the axis called love and no other movie can make you feel how love actually feels. all the movies try to explain love, but in this movie we can feel love. love between Clara and jayakrishnan also love between Jayakrishnan and Radha...... just pure love in a very natural situation and the dialogs are also very natural and a common man's words
